Animal Planet Real Scary Spiders App & Toy Review
It must be the age, but my 5 year old son has a thing for creepy crawlers lately. Spiders are of special interest! So you can imagine his excitement when he heard about the new Animal Planet Real Scary Spiders App!
Did you know that the new Animal Planet Real Scary Spiders App is available for FREE right now for iOS and Android Phones? Just download from www.realscaryspiders.com! This FUN new app for kids enables users to interact with a pet spider and bring their pet spider to life through a unique augmented reality experience.
Real Scary Spiders allows players to collect, nurture and raise spiders while learning cool facts, unlocking new species, following directions, and interacting with a FUN virtual pet. My son has actually been playing for a few days now. He loves making his pets jump and walk across the screen!
The really cool feature for kids is the augmented reality. You can transport your pet spider onto a target image in the real world, such as the cover of a magazine or a wall, just as if it was right in your home! Check out the app in action with my YouTube video review.
But the FUN doesn’t stop there! Animal Planet has released a brand new toy to go along with their new app! Introducing the new Animal Planet Web Blasting Tarantula, exclusively at Toys R Us! This Radio Controlled GIGANTIC spider can spin, shoot a retracting web and has a lifelike creepy walk. As if that wasn’t scary enough, the spider even looks lifelike with a furry body! YIKES!
Inside each box is a special QR code. Just scan with your smartphone and unlock EXCLUSIVE Real Scary Spiders App content like MORE spider friends!
I know that your kids would love to see the new Animal Planet Web Blasting Tarantula in action. Check out the FUN my son is having in my latest Video Review.
There are some things to be concerned about with this toy. Definitely keep away from little ones as the web retraction occurs sporadically. I wouldn’t want the babies to get blasted! The furry body also “sheds” with rough handling, so be mindful of the clean-up. And reminder that batteries are NOT included with this toy, so be sure to stock up on AAA and 9V. We haven’t had to change the batteries yet, and we’ve had for a few days now. That’s a plus!
All-in-all, while I definitely have the creeps from this new toy, my son is absolutely thrilled! He loves that he can play with his new remote controlled tarantula then play with his virtual ones in the new app. For a free app, this one definitely has lots of great features, educational value and entertainment!
You can purchase the new Animal Planet Web Blasting Tarantula, recommended for ages 6 years+ exclusively at Toys R Us. with an ARV of $24.99.
